Over the past several days, Ismailimail has shared various exclusive footage of the upcoming PBS special on His Highness the Aga Khan & the Ismaili Muslims – a first for PBS to feature the Shia Imami Ismaili Muslim community.

One day ahead of the show, scheduled to be aired tomorrow, Friday, July 31st, 2015 on their website at 6 pm EDT and across the US on more than 350 member television stations, Ismailimail is proud to share the final installment in a series of five, with an exclusive interview question and response with His Highness Prince Karim Aga Khan.

In this segment of the interview, graciously made available by PBS’ Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly, His Highness explains how faith informs his work.

PBS: How does your faith inform the work that you do?

His Highness the Aga Khan: Islam says that we as Muslims have to leave the environment in a better condition than when when we found it when we were born. In other words, Allah has entrusted to the human race the duty to improve, work with his creation. And that’s why the Aga Khan Trust for Culture is called a Trust. And that’s how the ethic of the faith comes into the way you work.

The objective of the PBS RELIGION & ETHICS NEWSWEEKLY Series is to educate the audience about different religions and allow people of faith to explain how their religion impacts their work.
